I carry myself in a more manly way, says Justin Bieber

New York: He may be just an 18-year-old pop star, but Justin Bieber says he’s all man.

“I feel like I carry myself in a more manly way,” the New York Daily News quoted him as saying during an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

“I don’t carry myself as a boy,” he said.

Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, said the teen has two distinct sides to his personality.

“On one side he’s probably the most mature and aware teenager on the planet,” Braun said.

“And on the other side he’s a like kid—like, literally, a kid,” he said.

Bieber’s mentor, Usher, said the singer’s maturity may be due to being raised without a father.

“He’s more mature than the average child — or rather, young man,” Usher said.
